Course content
1. Introduction to kinesiology musculoskeletal system. 2. Osteokinematika - Bone as motion element, function, functional anatomy, bone joints, skeleton kinesiology as a whole. 3. Artrokinematika - a joint motion element, functional anatomy, articular joints, general kinesiology building features and functions. 4. Cartilage and articular cartilage - cartilage as a motion element, functional anatomy, kinesiology general characteristics of structure and function. 5. Connective tissue - the joint capsule, tendons, fascia, ligaments as motion element, functional anatomy, kinesiology general characteristics of structure and function. 6. Myokinetika - Skeletal muscle movement as an element, the phenomenon of contractility, muscle contraction, functional anatomy, kinesiology general characteristics of structure and function. 7. Control of momentum - General principles of locomotion. Motor control systems - Own motion at different levels: archemotorika, paleomotorika, neomotorika. 8. Kinesiology pelvis and lower limbs - introduction, passive and active components girdle. 9. Kinetics and kinematics of leg joints - function, leg joints, foot arch, passive and active stability of the motion segment, clinical aspects, functional and structural pathology of this area. 10.-11. Kinetics and kinematics of the femur and tibia. Kinetics and kinematics of the knee joint - function, passive and active stability of the motion segment, clinical aspects, functional and structural pathology of this area. 12. Kinetics and kinematics of the hip joint - function, passive and active stability of the motion segment, clinical aspects, functional and structural pathology of this area. 13. Kinesiology basic postural mechanisms at the level of the lower limbs and dynamic movement stereotypes.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming)
Learning outcomes
Kinesiology aim of the course is to acquaint the students with the properties of individual tissues of the musculoskeletal system - soft tissue (contractile and non-contractile) and hard tissues (bones, joints). The basis is the understanding of movement and motion system works in a physiological context. Reflected is exploitation of the knowledge and ability of their application in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders in both functional and structural.
Based on the gained knowledges students will be able to provide functional diagnostics in human being. Also they can create a specific fitness program with using the proper exercises realized in suitable range, load and intensity.
Prerequisites
not required
